At Lunch Now: Five Guys Burgers Midtown A Few Weeks Away From Opening
Walked by what will soon be the Midtown location of D.C. chain Five Guys Famous Burgers & Fries today and found them in the process of hiring staff. The guys in front of the 55th St. (btw. 5+6th) location said they were 2 weeks away from opening, but from the looks of the inside, I’d guess more like 4. Regardless, we’re getting close and I’m getting excited.
Check out the menu w/ prices, after the jump…
When it was first announced that Five Guys was coming to NYC, the saying “In N Out prices” was thrown around. That is certainly not the case, as a cheeseburger and fries is going to run you $9. A little pricey, but in line with what the rest of Midtown is charging for a decent burger these days. The plus side is their standard burgers come with two patties. A “little” burger, just means one patty. Sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers as free topping options is certainly a bonus.
If you can’t wait, there are already locations opened in Brooklyn Heights & Queens. For more, check out A Hamburger Today’s coverage.
